Residence for Paresh Desai
This project comprises of two houses built on a single plot, sharing a common wall in between. The two separate houses belong to two brothers.
The design takes into account the issue of light and ventilation in a house that is long and narrow. It does so by introducing a courtyard to light up the interior parts and also allow the breeze to pass through the house. The major living areas surround the courtyard, including dining and family spaces, thereby creating a dynamic centre of the house - a generator of activities. The socio-cultural factors of the families have also been incorporated in the design, in the form of open terraces on the first floor.
